The Oddbins Take

What we love about the wines of Cairanne is most people have no idea what the heck it is. “Is that a Gaelic female name? Is that a make of Renault?” they ask. While those in the know enjoy the wines incredible quality that belies its low price point.

Cairanne is a named village in the Southern Rhone just like Chateauneuf-du-Pape but of course, the quality of Chateauneuf is well known and the wines are priced accordingly. Chateauneuf is like a bar in Covent Garden; you’re sure to receive excellent service and have a wonderful evening but you aren’t coming away with much change from a crisp £50 note. Cairanne is that secret bar in Peckham your friend told you about, the one in the back of the launderette, requires a password on entry and hasn’t yet been affected by over-exposure. In side you sit at the bar and are immediately served a glass of Famille Perrin Cairanne and you luxuriate in the aromatic intensity, with notes of crunchy black fruit, highlighted by mild spices and flowers. Then when you take a sip; the mouthfeel is smooth and velvety with an elegant finish. Yep, Cairanne is so good it inceptioned its own metaphor… impressive!
